Report: White House is colluding with big tech to crack down on vaccine ‘misinformation’

While Donald Trump promised to crack down on big-tech interference in communications, Joe Biden’s White House is taking a very different approach.

Reuters reported over the weekend that the Biden White House is quietly partnering with Facebook and Twitter to clamp down on anti-vaccine communication and information on the platforms.

What started as a campaign to combat “misinformation” related to the election and COVID-19 is rapidly extending into other areas such as general health information, once again raising concerns that these so-called platforms are acting more like publishers.

Throughout the vaccine development process, some have expressed hesitancy to get the inoculation due to the short time it took to develop the vaccine as well as the potential for unknown side effects.

Biden’s White House views this “hesitancy” as unacceptable in its quest to get 100 percent of the nation vaccinated, blaming uncontrolled social media communications as the culprit.

According to a source close to the White House, “disinformation that causes vaccine hesitancy is going to be a huge obstacle to getting everyone vaccinated and there are no larger players in that than the social media platforms.”

“We are talking to them,” referring to Silicon Valley social media giants, “so they understand the importance of misinformation and disinformation and how they can get rid of it quickly,” the anonymous source added.

The White House has zeroed in on events such as an independently organized vaccine protest organized on Facebook as the type of “misinformation” that must be cracked down upon.

So-called “independent fact-checkers” — shadowy individuals that are not experts in the fields they are censoring — have been turned loose on platforms like Facebook and Twitter since the outset of COVID-19 to keep conversations in check and to prevent Americans from sharing information that isn’t approved by the government — no matter the source.

Celebrity doctor Drew Pinsky spoke out against the censorship of those that don’t toe the line after one of his own Youtube interviews with another physician discussing COVID-19 was taken down, tweeting last week:

Physicians are easily frightened, whether by liability, ruined reputation, and now they’re frightened to even talk about their own profession! We must return to openly discussing medicine and science. That’s what science is all about!

  1. Oh sure. Go after big tech now because they dared to let someone say something that didn’t agree with your narrative. Your hypocrisy is so obvious it is sickening. Why not do something good for America and help your own people before you help our enemies.

  2. WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action?

    I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONCLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

    People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

  3. Im sick and FED UP with hi tech, the donkeys, the marxists, the hollywerd, the aantifa the MSM and BLM and others who are against our country, epecially biden the imperial, his hacks, SCOTUS: the clintons, the obamas, and the treasonous AMERICANS who want to OBLITERATE our HOME the USA!
    ts so damn sad to see my home turn communist expecially having fled from another communist regime.!
    The censorship, the taking away our rights, our freedoms our civil liberties, the pouring in of millions of illegals, amnesty for another 20 million. the democrats are TRULY DEMONS.

  4. Why is the White House giving the Covid19 to foreign countries before we are all shot? Why is the USA taking care of the whole world again ?

    1. this has to stop.we are united states of america we are free to speak and act. if these demorats want to change our country to communism then get the hell out of our country and this goes for all demorats.if you dont follow the consttution then you shouldnt be in politics. we had enough of blm.antifa joe biden kamala harris pelosi shummer shiff clyburn nadler and the rest of these corrupt politicans its called the democract party. . we stand by the consitutuion in the united states of america.next election vote these people out . there all corrupt.where is durham he better start investagate these demorats now before we dont have a country anymore.

  5. If we can’t get straight answers to legitimate questions, which is impossible these days anyway, why put yourself at risk to satisfy a corrupt government? They have a secret agenda much different different than ours, so until you are satisfied, just don’t get the vaccine. The same goes for the rest of it. Ignore them just like they ignore us.

  6. Question : If you are a Citizen and you have sworn under oath your knowledge about unlawful and illegal actions relating to the 2020 election and you can’t find a Court or Judge to hear your case :WHERE IN THE HELL TO YOU GO TO SEEK JUSTICE ..>>?? NOT ANY COURTS IN THE UNITED STATES 2020 !!

    1. same here. reluctance by FB and Twitter to accept views that are not in keeping with their own narrow minded and confusing-contradictory set of
      “community” standards is nothing more than violation of free speech.

  7. From the 1940s thru the 1990s the deep state govt controlled the networks, ABC,CBS,NBC, as well as the print media. They dictated not only what we thought about, but how we thought about events. From the 1990s through the 2010s, the internet offered more freedom of access to info that then loosened the deep state’s grip on what we could think about. That led not only to exposing the deep state’s corruption and control, but also to electing people like Donald Trump, to help set the US back on a more honest track.
    But the deep state would not be deterred and they roared back with a vengeance. Saul Alinsky has infected our hallowed halls of learning for decades and two of his most visible ardent supporters, Hillary and Obama, exemplify his corruptive effect on our social and political standards. And now we see the deep state align once again with the media oligarchs, Bezos, Dorsey, Gates and Zuckerberg, to reinforce their control of our access to information, and to allow them to dominate, once again, what we should see and think about and how we should think about those things.
    Censorship is back, this time with a more severe totalitarian grip, and they are not about to let go, all in the name of unity. This on a country that was born out of challenging everything and accepting nothing. Coalition building became our hallmark and our way of life. Our legacy. But the deep state has corrupted and corroded that way of life and seeks to rule by brute force, by punishing those who would speak out against them, and by doling out govt stipends to those who would kneel to their rule. Decision making time is fast approaching for these once United States of America. To Stand or to Kneel! That is how we move on from here. Stand up, folks, and resist!

  8. Quite accurate and entirely true statement., overlooked by most people who simply accept. without question the tactics of Deep State. All that is necessary for evil to prevail is for people of good will to do nothing (or say nothing).

  9. The absence or lack of rational thinking is wreeking havoc throughout the world. Silence indeed gives consent.

  10. I am not an expert on anything…BUT.. I am a thinking person…Wake up America. just hoping that it is not already..Too Late.

  11. Clues at his best give the house away, don’t take of his country first. Hay supposedly 80 million people voted for this dope. COVID-19 bill which DEMS pushing 9percent to COVID-19 only the other 81 percent going DEMS cover there F—- ups, like nys, calf,Cho,mich, and we money other countries. let’s face the facts Nancy, chucks, other plans. Plane an simple the republican have dig an down dirty just like DEMS do. United States is done.
